Your health

Expedition members will be provided with pre-trip medical advice and a medical questionnaire and asked to visit their family physician to receive a full medical examination.  This information will be sighted only by the expedition leader and our medical adviser and treated with full confidentiality.

What you carry on mountain

We have the luxury of a strong Sherpa team that will carry the team equipment, food and ropes on the mountain. There may be times where you contribute to the task of pushing the route forward and this may involve step plugging, rope carrying and assisting with some of the loads where necessary. However, we’ve ensured we have a strong team to fix the route and establish camps so you do not get overly tired from the route preparation and get a good chance to reach the summit. It will really help to ensure you are not overloaded and think hard about what is necessary to include in your personal kit as you are expected to carry your own gear.

When you put all your gear into a pack it still amounts to between 18-25kg so the load is not insignificant and you must come prepared for the high level of physical output. This reinforces the need to take just the right amount of equipment with you on the mountain and to ensure you are ‘pack fit’ before you arrive on the expedition.
